After the cases mentioned in last
issue, Ah Hoy was convicted of the
possession of opium, and Chock
lloon of gaming. The first was sen
tenced to pay $75 and be imprisoned
at hard labor for one month. The
other got $75 fine and ten clays at

Hanola, larceny of watch and
chain, valued at $10, property of
Henry Masscluiann. Defendant
pleaded not guilty. Massclmann tes
tified that he works at Mr. Schmidt's
house, Bcretania street; that last
Saturday he hung his vest contain
ing the watch in his room ; after
ward missed the watch ; one of the
prisoners working in Capt. Brown's
yard offered, for $5, to have the
property restored ; this was agreed
to, and that man and the defendant
brought the watch to him. The
prisoner referred to, Puahala, testi
fied that he saw the watch with de
fendant, and the latter at first re
fused to give it up, saying the
Chinaman at Mr. Schmindt's gave it
to him ; also that defendant was in
prison for forgery. Olliccr Rey
nolds swore to Ollicer Marcos and
himself finding naked footprints
under Massclmann's window. Ha
nola was found guilty in the third
degree anil sentenced to imprison
ment at hard labor for six months,
and fined $15 with $1.40 costs, term
of imprisonment to begin at expira
tion of former sentence.
Ah Sun and Ah Kum came for
ward with a plea of not guilty, to
the charge of assault and battery on
Maria. The trouble was about the
Chinamen's ducks getting into
Maria's pond. Evidence was some
what contradictory as to which was
the first to give battle, the accused
or the complainant. It was
clear, however, that Maria was
struck with a stick and had
her hair pulled, and that her
husband Lainaholo in coining to her
assistance was knocked down by
the) Chinamen and beaten till the
blood came from his mouth. De
fendants were convicted and fined
$2 each with $2.80 costs.
A question of more interest to
the little Guide than the salvation
of the Hawaiian, was discussed on
the verandah of the Kahuku ranch
house, the other evening. One laid
it down as a scientific truism that
nothing is to be believed that can
not bo proved.
"It is generally believed by its
own sciibes that the Morning Guide
is the great wit of the Honolulu
papers, is it not."
"Certainly it is."
"Has it ever been proved?"
"No, but it is susceptible of ocular
demonstration, with the aid of a ten
thousand power microscope."
The house had a couple of good
field glasses, hut no microscope of
the required power ; hence tho wit
of tho Guide continues to writhe on
a Procrustean bed of its own making.
"Have tho doggerel rhymsters of
the quarter-sheet any brains?"
"Yes, who says they haven't?"
"What proofs are available that
they have any?"
After an ominous silence of 6ome
minutes, "the lawyer," according to
the Guide's report, "slid off to
bed;" tho Professor and the l'rcsa
Don follow suit, aud tho "agricul
tural editor" and "mine host" are
left to contemplate the rhetorical
vacuum in which the evidences of
tho Guide's intellectual possessions

VIEWING THE RANCHES.
Editorial Correspondence of the
Thursday, Aug. 18th.
The lands seen yesterday from
the neighboring hills are to-day more
closely examined in the course of a
long weary equestrian tour. On
horseback from seven in the morn
ing to three in the afternoon, the
eun between 90 and 100 degrees in
the shade, the sea breezes inter
cepted by the mountains, and the
coral strand reflecting more Incan
descent caloric than poetic senti
ment the third da3's exploration
was one of those intensely exciting
sort of holiday excursions that yield
their highest satisfaction retrospec
tively, in the exhilarating recollec
tions of them that arise afterwards.
The trail leads over coral which is
evidently upheaval. Up through
every crevice and around every
boulder, big and little, there are
thick growths of pili, makuckuo, pua
lele (milk weed), nianienie, kukae
puaa and other native grasses. At
one place, a cavity in the rocks
contains luxuriant growths of bread
fruit, bananas, sugar-cane, and
numbers of wiliwili trees, with their
exceptionally pretty red seeds. The
natives say when these seeds are
ripe and red, there are plenty sharks
off Puuloa. On the lower part of
this land among the rocks, line
clumps of algaroba trees appear in
different stages of development.
All these trees have grown up within
about six j'cars. The large progeny
of baby algarobas whose frowsy
heads appear here and there over
the plains, if not nipped by cattle,
would evidently evolve, within a
very few fears, a race of sylvan
giants. Cattle kept off, and the
natural prapogation of these fine
trees assisted by some planting,
there is here the possibility of a big
bonanza in a ten thousand acre
forest within ten miles of the city
of Honolulu. As pasture land this
portion of the ranch is unsurpassable
in richness. It is the part of Hono
uliuli designated the fatting pad
dock. Cattle intended for the
slaughter house arc brought here to
have the "gilt edge" finish put on
them. About six head arc slaugh
tered every day for the Honolulu
market and forwarded by the steamer
Kapiolani. The ranch is capable of
supplying a much larger daily quota
of beeves, but the demand is limited,
and the ranch is of course stocked
considerably short of its capacity.
There arc at present on it some
5,500 head all told. But if the
grasses, and other plants in their
present condition, mean anything,
they indicate enough and to spare
for herds numbering twice live
A fact deserving of special note
is the improved breeds with which
the ranch is almost wholly stocked.
Durhams, Herefords, Jerseys, Ayr
shires and Holsteins are pointed out.
And, really, it needs not the eye of
a connoisseur or a grazier to notice
that the animals are no "square
piles of bones built on four uprights
of the same;" for no one can view
them roaming in herds over the
mountains, scattered in squadrons
over the plains or. massed in closer
order around the reservoir on the
fatting paddock without noticing
many of the points of superiority
characteristic of the several varieties
of improved stock.
THE INCREASE OF PROFANITY.
It seems as if this increase were
correspondent with the general
spread of intelligence, tho distribu
tion of wealth, the increase in the
number of graduates of the public
schools, the general expansion and
nctivity of the people. It is cer
tainly in many individual cases the
inevitable concomitant of the im-
porious instiuct for expression and
self-assertion. This instinct is be
coming more and more developed in
an entire class of our people, who
aro beginning to feel the effects of
civilization, of increased population
and of social propinquity. Where
as once they were few in number,
under tho necessity of hard work
and wholly unoccupied with tho
thought of amusement, they arc now
numerous, well to do, more or less
gaj', and they accordingly feel in its
fullest measure the workings of the
great instinct of expansion. Accord
ingly they have "begun to curso and
to swear" like Peter when he felt in
himself an imperious desiro to say a
great deal and really had nothing to
say. With a great many, perhaps
with most swearers, profanity simply
means the articulate expression of
thought or emotion. For people
whoso powers of expression aro
slight, who have only recently come
to feel tho need of any, profanity
has the attraction of seeininsr to be
very expicssive. wo snau never,
as a nation, swear any less until our
society in general insists more on
adequacy and accuracy of expres
sion and definitely makes up its
mind what is mere interjeetional
oxuberaneo and what is grossly in
decent. Philadelphia lrcss.

Bear in mind that lemons are tho
most useful fruit in tho domestic
economy. Tho juice of half a lemon
in a teacup of strong black coffee,
without sugar, will often cure a sick
headache. Lemon juico and salt will
rcmovo ordinary iron rust. If the
hands arc stained thero is nothing
that will remove the stains so well as
a lemon. Cut a lemon in half and
apply the cut surface as if it were
soap. Lemon juice is also a remedy
for rheumatism aud for the so called
biliousness of spring. In the latter
ca9e, take the juice of a lemon be
fore breakfast, the pulp may also be
cnten, avoiding every particle of
kin. Lemon juice with sugar mixed
very thick and taken at intervals re
lieves coughs. It must bo very acid
as well as sweet. Courier-Journal,
